Naloxone / Oxycodone / Suboxone

I can’t seem to find an answer. If oxycodone now has naloxone in it so that there isn’t an euphoric high, isn’t that the same as the Suboxone? Suboxone has naloxone in it but it must also have the narcotic also, otherwise how would it keep people from going into full blown withdrawals? The new pain pills are the SAME EXACT thing, they stop the withdrawals but do nothing for the pain? So aren’t we as the consumer/patient being misinformed as to the true nature of the new formulated pain pills? I’m in pain but oh thank you I still have narcotics in my blood. Naloxone stomps on the opioid, so what’s the sense??? Wouldn’t it be better to know the truth? Oh and by the way, UFOs exist lol. Loooking for the truth. ## Big Red Balloon, From what I can re...

is naloxone bad for your liver

I have hep-c. I'm on methadone, but am switching to suboxone or subutex. I hear that naloxone is bad for your liver. Is this true and should I tell the Dr this? ## My liver is fatty and I have been an opium addict since 2010. Can you please tell me if Naloxone tablets are harmful for my liver or not? ## Naloxone is processed through the liver, so it would be best to make sure you doctor is aware of all of your medical conditions to be safe, as a dosage adjustment might be necessary to it, or other medications that you might be taking. Shiku has your opium problem cause any liver damage that you are aware of? Some medications can worsen existing damage.

What Are The Effects of Taking Naloxone/Suboxone Long Term?

I have heard some horror stories about the effecta of taking Naloxone containing products long term. I have heard people say they had negative neurological effects from it as well as severe depression and other problems. I have also heard that Naloxone sucks all of the natural endorphins out of your body too. Doctors are really quick to prescribe a Naloxone/Buprenorphine combination product but never seem to be able to answer what the long/lifetime effects of Naloxone truly are. Has any research been conducted on the long term use of Naloxone? I am very concerned because it is nearly impossible to get a medication for drug addiction in this state that does not contain some amount of Naloxone. Since we are forced to take this medication, I think it is time we are told the truth about wha...

54 375 suboxone pill - does it block other opiates

I am trying to cut back on my pain pills (oxycodone #10) that I take 4-5 times daily for my pain. If I take the suboxone later that day and am still hurting, can I take 1 of my oxycodone's and will it work with my pain or will it block it and I would be just wanting it? Please help me if anyone knows the answer. ## The Naloxone in the Suboxone will block it from working. The Suboxone takes a very strong hold on the opiate receptors in your brain and tends to kick out other opiates, which could also result in dangerous precipitated withdrawals. NDC Code for more details: 0054-0189 The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help wi...

Orange round pill with no imprint but scored

Just wanted to know what these are? I got them in Australia. They are a very bright orange color with score marks on one side and nothing on the other. ## Are they orange flavoured as well? Perhaps if so, bupenorphine w/naloxone also generic for suboxone.

Take-Home Naloxone Kits

I'm a Journalism student from Western University writing a story about take-home Naloxone programs. Wondering if anyone here has used a Naloxone kit and what your experience was like? ## I am 35 years old and I am percribed 90 10mg oxycodone. I've been on and off of pain meds since I was 16. I was having a lot of back issues since the birth of my oldest 3 children so at that time a friend referred me to a pain clinic in the great state of FLA during the "pill mill" epidemic. My Dr. here in MD agrees with me in saying that I was totally mismanaged being perscribed in 2008 thru 2010 with 30mg oxycodone / 240 a month as well as 90 2mg of xanax. I very soon became addicted but when I found out I was 3mo pregnant I never showed back up to the Dr office again. I weined myself ...

naloxone detection times

I need to know how long before naloxone is out of urine, because i go to a subutex dr but ran low and took suboxone. I know naloxone shows up and it's a technical fail. So I need to know how long it'll take to be clear on a lab test? ## I know this was posted awhile ago, but maybe someone else can benefit from it. The detection time for naloxone is about 3 days in urine. ## I'm taking Suboxone & recently my Dr. Told me that I didn't have Naloxone in my system. So she thinks I'm running out early & taking Subutex & I'm not. I take mine as prescribed. Please help! I cannot get cut off. Thanks. ## My Dr. Thought I had ran low of my subs & had taken someone's subutex because they're was no naloxone in my system. I assured her that wasn't t...

Naloxone/narcan experiences

Recently I was given narcan in the emergency room after being nonresponsive for an hour and vomitting while I was unconcious. I had taken 120 mgs of ms contin and 2 mgs of ativan, but in this case it wasn't the pills I had swine flu. That was the reason I couldn't get enough air and couldn't stay awake. Anyway they gave me the narcan and almost immediately I started shouting and swearing and having extreme chills and heat flashes at the same time and extreme paranoia. I also couldn't stop coughing and was breathing very rapidly. I was just wondering if that was withdrawal symptoms from the dose of narcan or if I just had a weird reaction. Thanks for your help. ## Sounds weird or you are alergic! I say alergic cause my wife had the same kinda thing happen to her. ## The r...

Can you take naloxone targin with methadone?

Can you take Targin whilst on methadone? Will it make you sick? Targin is oxycodone and naloxone. I don't why they'd put it in. I'm just wondering if I'm able to take that as I'm on the dome. Scared it may counteract ## They really make a drug like oxycodone with naloxone in it I wonder how it works ? An opiate blocker and an opiate together ## The Nalxone does not dissolve unless its crushed or chewed. Or at least that is how it should work. Many have had bad results! ## Don't mix stuff with methadone. It's dangerous. If you are on more than 80 mg then mixing can become fatal. I used to take adderall all the time. When I got on methadone I started back on the adderall after awhile of being on the methadone and I never had a bad reaction to adderall before an...

can u take naloxone with methadone

I am on methadone and I've got an abscess in my mouth. It's killing me. Can I take targin naxolone or will it interfere with my methadone? ## Targin Naloxone will not do anything to help with an abscess, it is used to prevent opiate abuse. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and stomach pain. An abscess will require an antibiotic, and follow up dental treatment to correct whatever underlying problem has caused the infection. Have you consulted a dentist?

Suboxone or Naloxone causing hives?

Could my chronic idiopathic hives (of 5yrs) be caused by 2mg Suboxone? I've been on sub for that long. And if so, is it the bup or naloxone? I'm sick of getting Xolair shots and just masking the underlying issue. ## Hello, Mike! How are you? Yes, it has been known to cause that, in some people that take it, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. Unfortunately, I am not sure which ingredient is more likely the cause, but your doctor or pharmacist may know. Are you on any other medications?

can an allergist tell is youre allergic to naloxone

can a doctor all of a sudden say you need to see an allergist after he has wrote me for the last 6 months ## Yes, especially if they have some reason to suspect that you may be allergic to something. The allergist can do some tests to check and see if your doctor is correct. What type of issues have you been experiencing? The FDA lists the typical side effects of Naloxone as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and body aches.

Naloxone positive..

I recently tested positive for naloxone. I have never taken that. Please help, my job depends on it. I am taking diazepam, seroquel, buspar, neurontin. I was on an antibiotic nitrofurantoin and I tried a vistaril. Can any of these cause a false positive for naloxone? ## The same thing happened to me when I wax going in to doc to get my perc refill. My doc didn't say Bupe was also in my system and I too had taken: Diazepam, nitrofuratonin, and neurontin, as well as naproxen and robaxin. Did you ever find out if any of those scripts were the causing factor? Because she got hesitant because of the stigma of narcan being used as a drug for people overdosing. Thanks.

on suboxyn can you still het pain meds for surgery

Can you get pain meds if you have surgery while your on suboxyn or can you never get pain meds again ## Usually, your doctor would have you stop it several days before surgery, so it won't cause problems with anesthesia and to ensure that pain medications will work for you. The Naloxone in it usually only blocks them from working for about 3 days, after last taking it. The FDA classifies this as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

detox at home

I have a large and long opiate habit and no matter how long i wait to switch to subutex i go into heavy wd's. At times i should have been in the hospital. Any suggestions? ## Hello, Andrew! How are you? You do have to be in full withdrawal, already, before you can take it, even though it doesn't contain the Naloxone like Suboxone. The Buprenorphine itself tends to cling to the opiate receptors much stronger than other opiates do, so taking it to early can also cause you to go into full withdrawal. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. How long have you usually waited to take it? What instructions did your doctor provide?

SABOXONE Information wanted

## NEED TO KNOW USES, SIDE EFFECTS, DERIVATIVE OF ? ## I was doing a lot of searching around myself; Not too much out there on Saboxone. Then I stumbled across a document which made mention of the name along with other related chemicals: Saboxone (pending FDA approval) - Naloxone (antagonist) - Buprenorphine (partial agonist) - Tx of heroin addiction (more efficacious than methadone???) These drugs are for the treatment of opiate related addictions such as Hydrocodone, Herion, etc. Found an article on Buprenorphine at Hope this helps... ## Please see the drug SUBOXONE for more information.
